Greene Attorney Wants Default Judgment
DETROIT — The attorney representing the family of slain exotic dancer Tamara Greene in a lawsuit against Detroit wants a federal judge to hand him a legal victory without a trial.
Greene was killed in a drive-by shooting in 2003. It was rumored that she danced at a never-proven part at the Manoogian Mansion, thrown by then-mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, in 2002.
Her family has filed a lawsuit against the city claiming Kilpatrick and other high-ranking city officials thwarted the investigation into her death.
The family’s attorney, Norman Yatooma, said the city has repeatedly withheld records in the case and he wants a default judgment against the city.
